Significant advances have been made in the refinement and application of causal

mapping in several disciplines during the last three decades. The technique seems

especially suited for empirical research in IS, as researchers deal with issues of representations

of thought. The researchers now have a choice of perspectives (social

constructionist, objectivist, and expert-anchored), research contexts (discovery, hypothesis

testing, evocative, and intervention) and foci (content, structure, and behavior).

I expect this diversity offered by causal mapping to stimulate the use of this

technique. Indeed many empirical papers demonstrate the use and potential usability of

this technique.
